Maintenance of the Hillcrest Forest Service Road Southern Vancouver Island in the South Island (Duncan) Forest District

A resident of Hillcrest Road, a forest service road near Lake Cowichan village on Vancouver Island, complained that the road was not adequately maintained by the South Island Forest District and industrial users during the winter of 1996-97. The resident maintained that this had resulted in unsafe conditions for those living on the road. He asked that the road be graded before and after every timber sale and that the Ministry of Transportation and Highways take over responsibility for maintaining the road.
